Re-Enter with Revival Mindset: Revive in Five featuring Claire Becker, Claire Becker Coaching | April 28 | 5:30 PM
You have made it through an unprecedented year - and it’s ok to be tired. This was a year to push yourself, prioritize others, drop what you need to, forget the vacation, and feel the pressure to keep a make-the-most-of-it mindset. Now it's time to put the focus back on you, your priorities and your goals. This workshop will guide you in three steps to gaining momentum in this moment; momentum for you. Take a step toward better balance, toward planning for “reentry”, or toward enhancing your leadership, and take that step alongside your PD friends.
Professional Dimensions has always understood the importance and power of human connection. If fact, this foundational belief is what has inspired our theory of change and our mission: to unite women leaders in the pursuit of better. If we're not connecting, then we aren't living into our purpose.
Join us on April 26 to learn more about the history of MemberConnect, a longstanding PD program designed to facilitate connection and mentorship across our organization. Here you can ask questions, share feedback, hear from past participants and learn more about what to expect as we prepare for an April launch.

Office Hours | April 30 | 3:20 PM
Office Hours is a new effort to keep members connected to each other, networked, and knowledgeable about the work of Professional Dimensions. Our CEO will be present to answer questions, take suggestions and share ideas that have been surfaced by members. We'll soon develop a mechanism for fielding questions, but for now please reach out to Lauren Feaster directly with any topics or questions you'd like addressed: email@example.com. While questions are welcome day-of, it's helpful to have inquiries early to request special guests, committee leads, etc.
